    CBD oil

    Thought OldVet had a thread on this but couldn’t find it?

    Tried some CBD oil from the local compound pharmacy, went into it very skeptical. Oh my this is wonderful stuff!!! The sample they gave me was 500 mg (I think) and the one CWO brought me home is the 2000 mg, strong stuff. I haven’t slept this good in years, wow! What little stress I had is down to zero, pain level dropped quite a bit too!

    highly recommend this stuff if you can find a good source. The stronger one was $149. For two ounces, for the 500 mg it was around $60 for 1 oz to give you an idea what the real stuff is going for. I’m skeptical about getting any on-line esp after what all they found in the vapes. I think the 2 oz bottle will at least last a month, worth every penny! (Much less than RX’s and safer). I’m honestly enjoying the feeling, not high just chilled and relaxed.

    IMHO a Compound Pharmacy is the way to go with CBD oil. BTW, get the unflavored, the flavored I thought was terrible.

    Our cat has cancer however he doesn’t know it! Is eating fine and acting well even with the tumors on him. We put him on RSO and believe it extended his life. He isn’t on it now but is still doing good ~ I’m a believer!

    Sister, I have a good friend who uses it as does his mother-in-law. They both swear by it for pain relief.

    Good for you Sister! I got on board two years ago after shoulder surgery....topographical for pain relief (in the form of a salve). I went from there.

    You’ll find that it’s much more economical if you buy quality buds, online or locally, and process yourself. Get full spectrum stuff. A friend showed me how he makes salve with a crock pot and cocoa butter as the base. A little bees wax is an option. Since he’s been making it for me cheaper, I haven’t yet done. Oils can be extracted in the kitchen sink,so to speak, with Everclear. Ingestibles (sp?). There are many options. I’ve got a local grower that sells by the ounce so I don’t have to plunk down the money for a pound. Whatever you produce can be packaged in small, appropriate containers bought online, and it makes good Christmas gifts.

    As a side note, I gave low pet doses to an old cat we had, who was suffering with arthritis, and it helped him out. Our old dog, who suffered from angst from time to time, CBD only seemed to make things worse for him. Like people, it’s not for everyone. He started worrying about the checkbook balance or something.

    BTW....the crockpot method makes the house reek of hippies. Better done out in the shed.

    Tried it for insomnia. Didn't do a thing for that or any little ache or pains I have. Snake oil IMO.

    It could be that you got a batch of snake oil. There’s plenty out there.

    Entirely possible. There's a thousand companies out there selling this stuff. I did a ton of research and found what I thought to be a reputable brand.

    I don't think I had a thread on this, although I may have mentioned it at some point. There is too big of a wonder-drug market and too little control over what you're getting for me to mess with it. I think there're still some legal concerns with it, at least in FL. So I'll bide my time and see where this miracle drug goes.

    Haven't used the oil, but I have had good results with a CBD pain salve that worked on my sore shoulder. Much better than any of the OTC "icy hot" type stuff from Walgreens.

    So how much are you taking for better sleep? This is one thing that isn’t clear in any online dosage recommendations. They tell you what the full bottle contains, but now how much to take. I have a 1000mg bottle and 1ml is like 37 mg. I’ve taken 1ml several times and it did nothing for me.

    @StripesDude ;

    I take my meds like I cook; use some, then some more if needed. (Truth)

    Here are pics of what I have, what it says on the sides, what it cost and a link on the bottle as to where it came from. I got it at a privately owned pharmacy called a compounding pharmacy. Was told by the pharmacist and a person at a CBD store that the “full spectrum” is the one to get and it is what I have.


    See pics below:

    So this stuff is the strongest, I shake it up and squirt half-whole dropper full under my tongue then wait 30 min to an hour. A whole droppper full will guarantee me a nap lol!

    Heads up, to me the flavored was terrible, went with the unflavored. It taste like pot...so I’m told

    Honestly, it’s been about a week now and I’ve slept great every night. Haven’t seen sleep like this in years!

    not what was expected. CBD doesn’t give me the munchies, the eating problem I have is the lack of energy to fix food. I have anemia and am seeing a GI doc for that. There is leaking blood somewhere in the guts and they are going to make a bum trip with the colonoscopy tube to look for it soon.

    Oh Boy, goody! (sarcasm)

    Am tired of being so tired, hope they can fix whatever it is but is very nice to sleep so good! 😃
